Welcome Back Mr. Carpenter

Apr 9, 2009

Chris Carpenter was brilliant in his 2009 debut allowing just 1 Hit and an Unearned Run in 7 Innings of work.  He struck out seven Pittsburgh batters.  Carpenter did walk two batters.  Carpenter threw 92 pitches, 63 for Strikes.  Carpenter’s WHIP is 0.43 and his BAA is 0.42.  This was just Carpenter’s fifth start since 2007 as he has dealt with elbow and shoulder injuries.  Hopefully this is a sign of things to come for the 2005 Cy Young winner.

    If he can regain his old form I can see the cards being a team contending deep into the season
